Is it true that aluminium foil works just as well as all the RFID blocking materials in the marketplace?
Aluminium foil will somewhat weaken the RFID signal across a very limited spectrum, but it will NOT prevent your cards and passports from being scanned through fabrics at a close range. We use a certified RFID blocking material for shielding all contactless credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contactless smart cards that operate at 13.56 Mhz and above. (The 13.56 Mhz interface is the one that typically contains personal data).
How do you securely lockdown your bag?
Most Zoomlite anti-theft bags come with a secure lockable carabiner or with detachable cut resistant shoulder straps. This helps you to unhook your strap from one end and feed it through a fixed object, then back onto the bag. You could be sitting at cafe and have your bag secured to the leg of your chair or table. This helps in preventing an opportunistic thief from snatching your bag and running away with it, while you were momentarily distracted.
How can anti theft bags help prevent pickpocketing?
The best way to deter pickpockets is to ensure that they can’t get into your bag easily. Zoomlite anti-theft bags have special clips which allow you to secure the zipper pullers of the bags. This makes it hard for even the most experienced pickpocket to get into your bag without you being aware of it.
How are crossbody straps useful?
Cross body straps help you keep your hands free while you are out and about. They also help add an extra layer of security from bag snatchers, as it allows you to keep your handbag closer to you and to the front rather than at the side or the back. It also deters thieves from snatching your bag as they cannot easily grab it off your shoulder.
Are the slash resistant straps made of steel?
No, the straps are not made of steel. They are made of the same material as the bag but have a flexible steel cable inlaid into the strap. The flexible cable coated with plastic is lightweight and invisible to the naked eye. The cable in no way makes the straps less comfortable to use. In fact it makes the strap very resistant to most cutters. Odds are that after a few tugs and slashes, most thieves would move on to an easier target.
Are the anti-theft bags water proof?
Most Zoomlite anti-theft bags are made from a soft touch nylon that is water repellant. They will ensure that your valuables inside stay safe if you get caught in a rain shower, but are not designed for prolonged soaking in heavy rain. Most Zoomlite anti-theft backpacks are made from water repellant nylon too and have waterproof zippers for extra protection.
Are Zoomlite anti theft bags only meant for travel?
Zoomlite anti theft bags and backpacks are designed to keep your valuables safe and secure when you travel. Current styling and trends ensure that they are functional and up to date. As such these bags are not limited to be used only when you travel. They can be used as an everyday bag while you are out and about the urban jungle.
How do you clean these bags?
We suggest just wipe your bag with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.
